Cabbage update

It’s been about a week since the worms were first spotted and removed.  The next day, they were spotted again, plucked off again.

I had stumbled upon an awesome remedy in a book from my grandmother I thought may work.  Half cup of flour mixed with a half cup of salt sprinkled around the cabbage.

The result the following day?  A not so awesome spot for FIRE ANTS, plus the worms were still here.  I was sceptical that it would work, but thought it would make a cool experiment.  It was time for drastic measures.  After removing the worms for what felt like the hundredth time, the cabbage got a good spray with bug killer.  I’m not a fan of it, I can’t have a snack in the garden while working.

I’ll trade the snack for the worms anytime.  Maybe now the cabbage will get big enough to eat.
